Event Information

Join Catherine Flood, co-curator of FOOD: Bigger than the Plate, for a guided tour around this major exhibition. 

With over 70 contemporary projects, FOOD: Bigger than the Plate explores how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food. Taking visitors on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it poses questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways.
This timely exhibition draws on the V&A’s close links with food. Built on the site of Brompton Nursery, the V&A housed an early food museum and over 150 years ago opened the world’s first purpose-built museum refreshment rooms. The V&A café, catered by Benugo, remains central to the museum, linking food culture and the visual arts.

The V&A is very generously offering this unique opportunity without charge to Guild members. Places are strictly limited and we advise early booking. Particular thanks to Catherine Flood for leading the tour.
